Dancing for me is a means of communication and an expression of relationships. In my performances I focus on the immediate situation and the physical relationships that are present, hence the concept of kinesthetic empathy is central. I work with improvisation to animate a subtle interaction between the dancers' bodies and audience, always open to shifts and changes in any moment. The abstract yet unfiltered language of the body enables my work to carry interpersonal processes into a new realm, beyond the conventions and patterning of everyday life.
